Ron’s Gone Wrong (2021)
Watching the preview ads for this latest animation film coming out on October 22nd, I am uncomfortably aware that this scenario is exactly what the future could hold for mankind.
Now, David Icke would call this the tip-toe acclimatization of all things robotic, and I would say it’s essentially the Golem story all over again. Did you know that, in Jewish mysticism terms, Adam was a Golem? Oops…
‘The word golem occurs once in the Bible in Psalm 139:16 which uses the word גלמי (golmi; my golem), that means “my light form“, “raw” material, connoting the unfinished human being before God’s eyes. The Mishnah uses the term for an uncultivated person: “Seven characteristics are in an uncultivated person, and seven in a learned one”, (שבעה דברים בגולם) (Pirkei Avot 5:7 in the Hebrew text; English translations vary).’
In Modern Hebrew, golem is used to mean “dumb” or “helpless”. Similarly, it is often used today as a metaphor for a mindless lunk or entity who serves a man under controlled conditions, but is hostile to him under others conditions. “Golem” passed into Yiddish as goylem to mean someone who is lethargic or beneath a stupor.Wikipedia
Do you see what I’m getting at?
